The paper explores the economic viability of vegetable farming in Raichur district of Karnataka State. The primary data were collected form women vegetable growers in Raichur District using well prepared and pre tested questionnaire. About 30 vegetable growers were selected for the study using snow ball random sampling technique. The findings of study reveal that Cauliflower, Tomato, Okra, Green chilli, Cucumber Brinjal, and Drumstick were major vegetables grown in the study region. It was observed that higher cost was incurred in tomato cultivation compared to cauliflower cultivation. The net income realized by farmers in cultivation of tomato crop was Rs. 65,870.40 per acre and the net income was Rs. 83,192 per acre in cauliflower cultivation. The Benefit cost ratio indicates that both the vegetable farming are economically feasible and also it can be observed that tomato cultivation is less viable than cauliflower farming. So the women vegetable farmers are required to be trained in use of low cost technologies for vegetable based farming to enhance their income.
